amiable, if not direct. mitt romney, and i'm not comparing it to 1980 and ronald reagan being an appealing alternative, but jimmy carter, not a bad alternative. i think that could eat into the president's support and more than just the undecided voter support. what do you think? >> not necessarily. because what voters too often and we see this and a lot of data. they complain and gripe, especially well as down in the polls. when it comes down to it on election day they usually hold their nose, suck it up and vote for their party leader. that is why we have undecided voters. usually if you're a member of your party by election day you aren't going to vote for the guy neil: i know you do this in far more exhaustive detail that idea, but i am old and remember 1980 and to remember that the undecided voters at the time, jumped either ronald reagan or jimmy carter. it turns out a lot more did. i'm not saying that there is some truth to what you're saying. those who are leery of that party or the candidate of that party would jump, could jump if they are disenchanted enough with their own who cho
bad for the president. i compare the the campaign i ran with ronald reagan had an off night, he was ten points ahead and basically went on to win by 18. he had a very strong second debate. lou: every candidate should try to emulate? >> my sense is this president came under attack on both his performance, his own performance , his policies, and the good thing is once again romney kept coming back. this is what you do to create jobs. it was almost editorial. lou: editorial. he took to school. and you really see this -- >> you mentioned tonight. i want to repeal the franc. he says medicare should be a voucher. the you think these are popular policies? president obama said if you have such great plans for what you're going to do to replace dodd-frank. >> don't keep a secret. he did not produce. lou: the only thing i actually heard the president's taken i did not hear him say what you just said, by the way. i heard and basically say that if you have a secret it because you don't want it to be heard because it's too good. >> i have heard debate contrivances like that tie just as you h
sound, it's going to have to be tweaked the way it was by ronald reagan and speaker, democratic speaker tip o'neill, but it is the, the basic structure is sound. but i want to talk about the values behind social security and medicare. and then talk about medicare, because that's the big driver. >> moderator: sure. obama: of our deficits right now. my grandmother, some of you know, helped to raise me. my grandparents did. my grandfather died a while back. my grandmother died three days before i was elected president. and she was fiercely independent. she worked her way up, only had a high school education, started as a secretary, ended up being the vice president of a local bank. and she ended up living alone by choice, and the reason she could be independent was because social security and medicare. she had worked all her life, put in this money and understood that there was a basic guarantee, a floor under which she could not go. and that's the perspective i bring when i think about what's called entitlements. you know, the name itself implies some sense of dependency on the part of th
as a candidate. it could be very defining. ronald reagan was particularly haying third. he didn't let on about the criticisms. he felt the carter campaign waged against him and the distortion and lies of the campaign and wanted to settle a score in the debate but he left it with their you go again. didn't get involved in the minutia or detailing each and every spike. just some it up in a comment like that. not saying this debate can survive 90 minutes on little things but expects some of that tonight. dennis: wall street has decided this election is over and obama has won. the debate starting tonight confirm that or is there a chance the debate could make the difference and shift the tide here? >> this is the same wall street that earlier in the year thought mitt romney had won. i might respect some of these guys stock-picking acumen but i have serious doubts about their political acumen. i will leave the calendar to decide how this is judged. any snapshot at any moment is just a snapshot in a moment. might seem simplistic but bears watching that we could go the president was up by 10 points i
